Weather may have postponed it last month , but the 152nd Anniversary Gettysburg Reenactment kicked off with a bang this weekend!

Explosions and reenactors filled a farm next to the original battlefield.

The reenactment is an all day, family event.

Several battles are performed each day.

History buffs can also enjoy artillery demonstrations and tours of Military camps.

Many anticipated this year's reenactment, after storms rolled through last month, delaying the event.

But this weekend, hundreds came out for their chance to step back into history and watch reenactors brave the tough conditions.

Union 2nd Lieutenant, David Dilks says, "Normally in July, we've done reenactments out on the field, where it's almost 100 degrees. The field is almost 110 and 115 degrees.  That's pretty hard on the guys."

Reenactment events will continue through Sunday.
